Fake snow in texas

What Snow Looks Like

I’m in the grocery store. A little girl is looking at the asparagus sitting in crushed ice. She says outloud
“I bet this is what snow looks like.”

I look and touch the ice and say, “I used to live where there was a lot of snow, and yes this is what it looks like.."

At the next display she says proudly “Mommy that lady says this is what real snow looks like.”
I say “Yep it is.”

Then I think about the snow I’d never thought I’d miss. When it is untouched and sparkling in the sunlight like rainbow glitter. Maybe I’ll see it again. Maybe I‘ll see it in one more month.
